What version of VPX are you running crackers? My Version is VPX7. I'm not sure if it will play in VPX6. Legin gave me some ideas about how to run both 10.6 and 10.7. cheers mate. Hope your well. We are in lockdown Wollongong.

I was on 10.6, but when I tried to run your Gridiron (and the latest Frankenstein) it wouldn't work, so I updated to 10.7.

Still on 10.6 on the cabinet, so I'll have to have a fiddle with that when I get home. I don't really want both versions on that, so hopefully everything plays nicely together.

I see Legin ran into some strife with Pinup Popper recordings. That's the sort of thing that I want to avoid - not a problem on the laptop because I just run a stand alone VPX, but would be really annoying on the cab.

I just took it slow and was relieved when it worked. I got sick of windows conflicts with Ultra DMD so I have gone to FlexDMD and disabled windows updates on my cabs. I saw that Major Frenchy updated to FlexDMD and then a week later he was having issues again. Windows 10 major updates have caused me a few issues. I upload everything on my mac and transfer across to the cab. I also found out in my last update that the Backglass server doesn't allocate screens ID the same way as Windows does so I made some changes in the Script file as recommended for my PIN2DMD

 

This is my post of changes I made that I posted in the 7:1 thread in this forum. Legin has put his summary in that thread as well.

Since uploading VPX7.1https://www.vpforums.org/index.php?a...tion=attach&at tach_id=32419 I haven't found a game that I haven't been able to play and it is stable.

I uploaded, VPX7, ( Save the old files to a folder and its pretty straight forward to go backwards if you want to)

I updated my DMD ext to Freezy v1.8 32 bit ( The all in one loader has the extension .msi and I required the dmdext-1.8.0-x86-Release.msi for my PIN2DMD), Colours are so vibrant now. https://github.com/freezy/dmd-extens...ses/tag/v1.8.0

I updated the B2S server 1.3.0.4https://www.vpforums.org/index.php?a...ay&section=dow nload&do=confirm_download&hash=2a152e8fb7e82a1cb06 5282aa2e280bf and I updated my screen text file in the VPinmame table folder as per outhere's recommendations (https://www.vpforums.org/index.php?s...=7#entry346276). I set my screen text files assuming my backglass was the number 2 monitor but VPinMame doesn't use numbering the same as windows. My Back glass is now number 1 in the screen text file. That link explains what to do for your setup

For PUP games I updated to flex dmd https://github.com/vbousquet/flexdmd and I no longer have the clashes with Ultra DMD and windows.

Its all working fine and backwards compatible to all the games I have loaded on my machine.

 

The VPX7 games have gone to a whole new level and the new VR games just keep popping up.

cheers mate

Game closed.

Congratulations to Kane who has continued his winning ways from the last competition to take the first win of this league. PPLBob was just 300 points behind in a super close finish to take 2nd place and RusstyT takes 3rd. A very close competition overall on this game.
